Liqueurs de France (http://www.absintheonline.com) is proud to announce that three of their absinthes have won awards in the Absinthe Masters 2011 organised by the Spirits Business. Enigma blanche won the Master in the uncoloured category, a Gold was claimed by Enigma verte and Nemesinthe scooped a Silver in the coloured category.

Enigma verte and Enigma blanche are unfiltered premium absinthes produced at the Paul Devoille distillery in Fougerolles, France. They are made from a combination of aromatic herbs and plants, including grande and petite wormwood, anise, fennel and hyssop, both use a grape-base alcohol. Enigma verte is bottled at 72%, in order to hold its natural green colour and present its aromas to the fullest. It louches beautifully, and is complex and intense. Sure to please those who are searching for a spicy, yet traditional absinthe. It represents one of the best quality/cost values in modern traditional absinthes.

Enigma Blanche is made from an original 19th century recipe with the same herbs as the verte but including veronica, camomile, génepi, coriander and angelica. The alcoholic strength is 74% as historically specified, giving this absinthe real backbone, but by no means overpowers the finesse and lingering aromas of this complex absinthe. This absinthe is often compared to, and surpasses in quality, many uncoloured Swiss la Bleues now made today.

Nemesinthe absinthe is produced at the Timbermill distillery in London, UK. It was created by Liqueurs de France to provide a cocktail-friendly absinthe for every day drinking. It was recently awarded Silver medal, best in class at the 2010 International Wine and spirit Competition.

Ian Hutton, owner and director of Liqueurs de France said. "We are extremely proud to have won awards for our absinthes. I feel that it a just reward for our commitment to providing quality and value to our customers and it will help us to establish our brands internationally." Enigma verte and Nemesinthe were recently launched in India and a deal has been signed to distribute Nemesinthe in a so far undisclosed middle-eastern country.

Liqueurs de France is an importer and distributor of specialist liqueurs and spirits based in Esher, Surrey, UK.
